Andy Liddell struck his second goal of the season in our first ever league meeting with Norwich City in what turned out to be our 10th of a 14-game unbeaten streak in the club's debut campaign in the second tier of English football.

High-flying Latics recorded their third of four consecutive draws at the time, but Paul Jewell's men were making waves in the Championship regardless.

Liddell's opener in the first half was a well-taken finish at the back post, nestling the ball down on his thigh before driving the ball low beyond Rob Green, before Iwan Roberts grabbed the visitors a point with an equaliser for the Canaries in the second half.

Future Latics midfielder Damien Francis featured in the Norwich side, as did future manager Malky Mackay.

Wigan Athletic 1 Norwich City 0 March 2013 Arouna Kone celebration

Preparations for our first ever FA Cup semi-final were going swimmingly, and a third win from four in the Premier League courtesy of Arouna Kone's thumping winner nine minutes from time made the build-up to our clash with Millwall at Wembley Stadium even more exciting.

The 1-0 win against Norwich City turned out to be our penultimate Premier League victory, but at the time it provided back-to-back top flight wins and the hope of survival in 2012-13.

It was Kone's second winning goal in as many matches, having crucially netted in the 2-1 victory over Newcastle United at the DW Stadium 13 days earlier.

Latics: Robles, Alcaraz, Boyce, Figueroa, McCarthy, Maloney, Gomez, McManaman (McArthur 67), Beausejour, Scharner, Kone (Di Santo 89)
Subs: Al Habsi, Caldwell, Stam, Espinoza, Henriquez

Norwich City: Camp, Martin, Bassong, Turner, Garrido, Johnson, Snodgrass, Howson (Tettey 85), Hoolahan (Becchio 85), Bennett, Kamara (Holt 80)
Subs: Steer, Whittaker, Tierney, Fox

Norwich City 0 Wigan Athletic 1 - Wednesday 4 March 2015

In a tough time for Latics as they battled to try and survive in the Sky Bet Championship, South Korean international Kim Bo-Kyung gave us a glimmer of hope by securing our first ever victory away at Norwich City with a thumping volley eight minutes into the contest at Carrow Road.

Having won 3-1 away at Blackpool four days earlier, Latics made it back-to-back wins for the first time since August, with what was our third of four straight victories on the road.

The win was ultimately unable to contribute to us surviving the drop in 2014-15, but the goal itself was a cracker and makes our list!

Norwich City: Ruddy, Whittaker, Martin, Olsson, Bassong, Johnson, Howson, Redmond (Morris 77), Dorrans (Andreu 88), Jerome, Hooper (Hoolahan 45)
Subs: Rudd, Cuellar, Garrido, Murphy

Latics: Carson, Maguire, Boyce, Bong, Perch, Pearce, McClean, Pennant (Cowie 65), Kim Bo-Kyung, Clarke (McCann 84), Fortune (Waghorn 87)
Subs: Al Habsi, Taylor, Mckay, Ojo
